23 May A Message from Jill Rhinehart
Dear CUMC Church Family,
On April 29th, Marie Brinkley, Staff Parish Relations Chair announced that Rev. Billy Towery will be the new minister at Central UMC. I think Billy brings great gifts and talents to Central UMC. He is moving from Pleasant Grove UMC in Charlotte, NC. Billy has served at Pleasant Grove UMC since 2010.
Billy is originally from Cherryville and still has family that lives in that area. Billy is a graduate from Gardner Web University. He received a Master of Divinity from Duke University. Billy’s wife is Karen and they have two children. Billy current’s church has two services. One is a contemporary service and the other a traditional.
I am grateful to welcome Rev. and Mrs. Billy Towery and their children to Kings Mountain. I know they will be a wonderful addition to the Central UMC church family. Billy and his family will move into the parsonage by the first week in July. His first Sunday in the pulpit will be July 15th.
Rev. Jill Rhinehart
